2. Salad Spoon- measures 10"long.

Each piece is marked"Georg Jenson, Inc."and"USA, Sterling, L.P". The "L.P." initials were for designer La Paglia who in the 1940's worked for the New York company that had the sole rights to distribution of Georg Jensen silver in the United States. They somehow acquired the rights to theJensen name for 100 years and hired their own silver designers to make silver under the Georg Jensen name. Needless to say,the Jensen Company was unhappy when they realized the position this put them in and a law suit followed.
One of the New York designers was anItalian named La Paglia that had worked for the JensenCompanyfor awhile.Although La Paglia's Jensen interpretations were a huge success and command high prices in the secondary market, Jensen purists insist that La Paglia could not equal the craftsmanship or the originality of the Danish creations.
